This paper discusses the multiple node disjoint paths protocol (MNDP) for mobile ad hoc networks. A mobile ad hoc network is a collection of mobile nodes that cooperate without networking infrastructure so as to form a temporary network that meets some immediate needs. The MNDP protocol detects multiple paths and distributes transmitted packets over these paths. Such distribution reduces congestion and packet end-to-end delay, and increase the delivery ratio. The MNDP protocol detects multiple paths, assigns them a priority values based on the routes hop count and uses the shortest routes among them more frequently. The simulation results show that the proposed protocol has achieved an enhancement on packet delivery ratio, up to 16%, as compared to the Ad Hoc On-demand Distance Vector routing protocol (AODV) protocol. Finally, the results are obtained based by the GloMoSim 2.03 simulations.
